I Gotta Start Promoting this Book Now. But I Need Your Help.
I know there is interest in a book about this old toy and now I need to generate further support for it prior to launching the KickStarter campaign in March. Right now, I'm not reaching a wide enough audience and this is largely because I'm not dedicating adequate effort on my part to social media.
I recognise Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are great platforms for spreading the word so it's essential and even mandatory to have a presence on them. I've done my task scheduling for the next 6 weeks and dedicating the time needed to make these platforms work in favor of promoting the book is currently beyond me.
I need people who are adept in these areas to pick up on this Project and promote it. I really need this to happen so that I can continue to focus on the other many tasks still at hand, that is pursue costs to generate a budget, prepare the KickStarter campaign and prepare the book for eventual publication.
Dedicating my time to working in these essential areas and not have my efforts eroded away by gaining experience in social media is what I should be doing. I really need people to step in and realise this Project is worth promoting via their long established accounts on these social media platforms.
This is critical simply because KickStarter, where I intend to float this Project to raise money to publish it, is highly dependent upon those social platforms. Be successful on Facebook and/or YouTube and just about any KickStarter campaign is a walk in the park. Fail in those areas and success is dramatically reduced, adding anxiety and concern to the Project and its campaign as a whole.
The whole social media aspect is where this will all come together if I am careful and this is of big concern to me due to my lack of presence. I need help in promoting the book on these platforms by people who can already reach thousands. Without such assistance, the success of this Project diminishes dramatically.
The bottom line is I need to get people excited about this book and I need your help to do so.
This is a 200+ page book and nothing like it exists. It's unique in what it encompasses and endeavors to explore. You can purchase any number of books about the movie itself and how it was made. You can buy novelisations, novels, reference material and comics until your shelf is flowing over. There's an abundance of action figures galore that can be found with ease. But there isn't a single book dedicated to comprehensively exploring the merchandise surrounding these movies. Not one. Well, maybe just one. HIDEOUS PLASTIC is it.
Right now, I need support on social media. If you really want to see this book be a success on KickStarter, then tell people about it. The campaign is scheduled to be announced in early March, just weeks away! I would hate to delay it due to lack of support. Please help me make this happen. Spread the word via FaceBook, Twitter and YouTube. I need to generate all the interest I can right now on these platforms to make this Project be successful later.
Don't forget to direct traffic back to the HIDEOUS PLASTIC web site

section and the FAQ
. Take a peak into the Collated Works
while you visit. There's Reviews

and a treasure trove of other online links and resources regarding the 1979 ALIEN action figure buried in there. The site has no shortage of content - and at an excess of 200 pages, the same can be said about the book.
